Per Horse? and do you use them all?

Charlie has about 6. 2 x leather ones, 2x synthetic ones, 1x material type one and one (fake) sheepskin lined one. My reasoning behind so many is that I can gather dirty ones up to put in the wash together, that never seems to happen though and I always seem to use the same two girths all the time!

Millie only has one at the moment as I have just got her a new saddle and none of her old girth fitted with it (she did have about 4) so they will be going on eBay. Think I may just get her one more new one so she has a spare.

more than several! most of which i dont use!
swapped my leather atherstone for a stubben string for my sadlle-slippy-horse
despite the many girths I am currently using the same girth on 3 other horses since I have to carry everything up to my field i only take what i have to!

With 4 kids, equine washing takes a back seat, so I should have hundereds, but I have a few, and my fav is a elasticated, neprone covered one that does not get as filthy as all the others. We also use racing girths on the racing saddle - but those are webbing, so do need washing. The old style cottage craft type (that were revolutionary when they replaced the string girths....yes I am that old!) are now fairly naff!

Each horse has three, but like many of you, I only use the same ones all the time! All go in the washing machine

Two are the 'fairly naff' Cottage Craft ones & I still like them!

2 Stubben string ones he came with (one brown, one white) however he was a fatty when I got him so neither fit anymore.
2 Aerborn girths in 2 different sizes.
1 Leather girth (allthough thats on another horse at the moment)
1 Dressage Girth

All for one horse who has 2 saddles

1 leather atherstone
1 cottage craft (haven't used for ages)
1 leather dressage
1 thorowgood (use this the most as it dosen't seem to get dirty)
My pony has 2 old cottage craft and one of those old-fashioned webbing show girths that are stitched together in the middle with a bit of rubber and I use this one the most on her.

For three neds we have...

One normal leather;
One wavy leather;
Three Aerborn;
One dressage;
Two Cottage Craft;
One Wintec;
And three-ish others that I can't remember what they are, I just keep ignoring them in the hope they'll find a new home somehow (along with the five saddles sat on the study floor...
